Freight transport company LTG Cargo is launching an intermodal freight train for the transport of containers between Kaunas Intermodal Terminal and Slavkov in Poland. The terminal, located near Katowice, is an important hub of Poland’s broad gauge railway network, which connects the railway lines between Lithuania and Poland and Ukraine and Poland. Freight trains also run regularly from this terminal to Schwarze in Germany, Maddaloni in Italy, Koper in Slovenia and Gdansk in Poland. Railway Supply magazine writes about this with reference to the Global Railway Review.

It is planned to launch a regular service with two pairs of trains per week. At the request of customers, cargo transportation can also be delivered to the port of Klaipeda. LTG Cargo will provide transport in Lithuania, while LTG Cargo Polska, a subsidiary of LTG Cargo, will carry out transport operations in Poland.

This new connection will allow transferring even more goods transported by road between Lithuania and Poland to rail transport. Thanks to intermodal rail transport, it will be possible to efficiently distribute even individual containers of customers for onward transport to other major terminals in Poland and Europe, and therefore more carriers will be able to choose more sustainable logistics solutions.

The new route Kaunas-Slavkow will have a length of 740 km with a carrying capacity of up to 93 TEU per run. LTG Cargo and the Group’s subsidiaries are currently concentrating their efforts on active diversification towards the West. Intermodal transport is currently operating from Lithuania to Duisburg in Germany. The company also provides Lithuanian customers with competitive freight forwarding services and organizes the transportation of agricultural products and petroleum products between Lithuania and Ukraine.
